You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness.
The doctors will not issue a medical sick note (Med3 or Med5) unless you have already self-certified 7 working days.
If the doctor has specifically advised you that they can repeat your sick note via a telephone call, then please call us to request this between 10am – 12 noon, or between 2pm-5pm in the afternoon. The sick note can then be collected 48hrs after this.
